Youngstown’s Z104 flipped from oldies music to holiday tunes on Friday.
“If ever ‘we could use a little Christmas, right this very moment’ it is this year. We simply want to lift people’s spirits,” Bill Kelly, Cumulus Youngstown vice president and market manager, said in a statement.
The station flipped last year at the end of October.
The station will return to oldies music after the holiday season.
